The machine is adjusted to and operated in the most efficient manner for the application it is used in. Multiple machines used during the annual farming cycle use synchronized precision farming data facilitated by the seamless transfer of operational data across machine precision management systems. Multiple machines engaged in a single operational process on the farm are coordinated using advanced logistics to ensure the movement, location, operation and readiness of each vehicle achieves process completion in the most efficient manner possible.
